News from our Acting Principal, Catherine McMahon
It’s hard to believe we are almost at the end of Term 2. As I walk around the school I see many examples of the excellent work done in classes over the term. Semester 2 has started this week after all senior students completed their formal exams for every subject last week. Reports will be available from Friday June 30, the last day of term.
Glenroy College is proud to be one of 100 schools across the state selected to participate in the Doctors in Secondary Schools program. Over the past weeks we have been watching as a ‘mod’ building has been delivered and fitted out with modern fit – for – purpose GP consultation facilities in preparation for commencement of the program in term 3. This is a great result for our school community. It is a program designed to provide accessible and affordable medical advice and health care services to those students most in need in an environment they know and trust. Students will be able to make appointments through the wellbeing team.
I have been working with architects and the Victorian School Building authority on renovation and maintenance projects around the school. These works include renovations to staff toilets and gym change rooms, fixing of cracks and leaks around the buildings, new drinking fountains and some new flexi paving on the basketball court near the PAC. Works will commence early in Term 3.
I hope you have a happy and safe holiday.
Catherine McMahon Acting Principal
